Watch For Cambodian Kids, Friends International Redefines Normal on PBS. See more from PBS NewsHour.
When I watched this segment that aired last night, I understood more deeply the challenges social entrepreneurs face every day. Sebastien Marot, featured on PBSNewshour for his work in Cambodia, helps poor children who might otherwise spend a life of selling flowers on the street. Through his restaurants, where they can learn culinary skills and have gainful employment, we see glimmers of hope. But sadly, we also see the drugs, which are sucking the life out of many of the country’s street children. Marot also discusses his funding challenges, and his work in other countries.
